Default My front brakes suck

Have any of you upgraded your front brake setup and if so what kit did you go with? I dumped the factory rotors about a 1 1/2 year ago and went with a pair of Bremo crossdrilled and now I am getting wheel shake when I brake at high speeds. You cant do much with warped crossdrilled rotors other than throw them in the garbage. Any suggestions?

Forget them pretty ones and pick up the ones from tire rack that aren't cross drilled, good price.

Yeah I guess looking pretty isnt always the best thing. Its either get the pretty ones and not be able to stop hense run into something or someone and then I will have more to worry about than just rotors...or get the ones that are going to stop my ass. Hmmm I think the plain ones are goin back on the car

they're not warped. you'll never get a rotor hot enough on the street to warp it. and modern rotors are too thin to cut anyway.

re-bed the pads.

Never done it? How is it done? All I have heard is about it is something along the lines of making a couple hard stops???

I'm going to go on a limb and recommend EBC's RED STUFF. not only are they not green, they are ceramic and have better stopping ability when they are HOT.

you can resurface cross drilled rotors, you just have to debur all of the holes. it sucks. But like everyone else said ditch those and get some slotted or plain old non slotted.

28,000 milse and I'm on my second set of rotors and third set of pads. I like our brakes.

I use Ford parts, but some day, I would love to get an ugraded system also, just for the safety factor since there are some great systems available now.
